  2. I know I'm likely gonna be in the minority, but I actually really dig Kenny and Don as '80s ski movie heels. The interrupting with the shitty little golf cart horn cracked me up.

  5. It's the "Goatfucker" theory of comedy. Someone fucks a goat. When someone says, "hey that's disgusting", they respond, "LOL I'm just joking!" But at the end of the day, they're still fucking a goat. Someone needs to tell Joey what a fucking stupid, stupid, stupid idea it is to do something like this.

  9. Shit, @caleyreminded me of something while we're all getting nostalgic... Who else used to listen in on scrambled PPVs to find out what happened? My folks thought wrestling was stupid as hell and would've laughed at the idea of shelling out good money for a show, so I spent many a Sunday night listening in on scramblevision...

  12. I love the way the Hasbro figures looked, but I will never understand why it took so long for someone to get the idea to make wrestling figures that had actual articulation. My GI Joes spent way more time in the ring than any of my WWF or WCW guys did. E: This dude was a multi-time action figure wrestling champion, even if he was a bit of a Johnny Kickpads:

  13. I should add that young me was a Bad News Brown stan and loved the Ghetto Blaster as a finish (and still do). I still bust out "beer-bellied sharecroppers" as a joke insult.

  15. I turned on Dynamite Friday, and I saw the cage set up and I immediately thought, "I don't like this." I don't like anything in pro wrestling that does the "this part isn't like the rest of the show, it's real" stuff. I don't want to see a "real" fight on a show with Orange Cassidy. That said, I ended up liking the match. They did a pro wrestling match in that cage, IMO. It made sense that Hager got the win in his "environment". I like it when wrestlers have a specialty and they almost always succeed with it.

  20. As a side note, 1996 is the best year ever and not just because I was 12, right? Stone Cold and the NWO are born, N64 came out, so much goodness.

  26. 19-year-old Log sitting sixth row behind the announcers table that Michaels fell through. One of my high school best friends (then a nursing student) stitching up Michaels after the match at St. Louis Deaconess Hospital. She was never a wrestling fan, but said that Chyna was amazingly sweet to everyone at the hospital. So much so, that Chyna's death really affected my friend.

  32. I don't think he had it in his entire WWF run. I did some Googling and there are many pictures from that run where it definitely doesn't look like he has a tattoo. And then I had to clear my cache, since I didn't want a page entitled "Ahmed Johnson's Big Beautiful Butt" in my browsing history.

  38. He has a match with Shawn that was on a Coliseum home video release that pretty much solidified Shawn needed to be a singles. He has a good match with El Matador that was on the Summerslam Spectacular USA special in 1992. It's hard to judge Flair given that WWF was so syndicated TV based, and it's nothing but squash matches and dark matches that never made air (or some random Coliseum video released several months later). Even in the worst business time for WCW in the Herd era prior to him leaving, Flair would be at least allowed to go out there and have a good to really good 10 minute TV match with Brad Armstrong or Bobby Eaton. Besides the Rumble in 92 and the loser leaves town match, the best thing Flair did in that run was the angle on Superstars (9/28/1991) with Savage and Piper. That shit was perfectly executed, and this was YEARS before Vince was actually physically involved in anything. If you just saw that at the time, you would think there is no way Flair fails to succeed (a fairly absent) Hogan as the top guy in WWF. Problem is all the guys he could have money feuds and great matches with are either gone, a shell of their former self due to drug problems (KVE, who was pretty much a non factor by the time his old nemesis got there), and/or being transitioned to commentary and part timer. Shit, Steamboat as The Dragon was there for like what? Three months? As much as Flair deserved his run in WWF, the WCW roster upon his departure was perhaps better than what he got to go against in WWF at the time. It felt like the reason why WCW failed to launched during the Watts era (besides Watts believing it was still 1983) is it was missing Ric Flair to go long with having Austin, Windham, Sting, Vader, Steamboat, a relatively still fresh Shane Douglas, Pillman, a more polished Steiners (specifically Scott more than Rick who already showed himself to be serviceable), Rick Rude, Dustin Rhodes, Ron Simmons, and Cactus Jack. Hey, maybe those guys don't try to grab the brass ring if Flair is there. However, that relationship was very much mutual. He could do more there than with a very depleted WWF roster and a lot of behind the scenes turmoil (even more than WCW, which is crazy given they had a new booker, structural hierarchy, Sr. VP, and new direction every six to nine months). It's hard to blame Flair for that run when WWF didn't have the pieces for it to work.
